(Newser) – The Gloved One is planning a comeback on Broadway, E! Online reports. After years of promising a return to showbiz, Michael Jackson has agreed to stage a musical based on his smash record, Thriller. He will supervise "every aspect of the creative process," a rep says, allowing producers to use songs from his 1982 pop masterpiece and his 1979 album, Off the Wall.

"I love the idea of making Thriller a musical," said producer James L. Nederlander. "Girl meets boy, they fall in love, boy has big secret."
